Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme may be the kings of fried, ring-shaped dough, but I found a donut shop that blows them out of the water. I mean come on Dunkin sucks.. It is known as the “Fractured Prune”, and the company has a few locations scattered around Maryland. The Fractured Prune specialzies in gourmet donuts that are made to order freshly fried in front of you and dipped into the toppings while they are still hot.  They have tons of premade selections to choose from, but you can ask them to make anything your heart desires. Start out by choosing what kind of cake for the donut, if you want it dipped in chocolate or another sauce, and then any toppings such as marhmallows, chocolate chips, coconut, fruit, etc
Think I’m kidding you?! You’re wrong. Behold their speciality donuts – or you can make your own:

Banana Nut Bread: banana glaze, cinnamon sugar, peanuts

Black Forest: raspberry glaze, coconut, mini chocolate chips

Blueberry Hill: blueberry glaze, powder sugar (Find Your Thrill)

Carnival: honey glaze, rainbow sprinkles

Creamsicle: orange glaze, powdered sugar

Chocolate Covered Cherry: cherry glaze, mini chocolate chips

French Toast: maple glaze, cinnamon sugar

Lemonade: lemon glaze, granulated sugar

Morning Buzz: mocha glaze, Oreo® cookie crumbs

Myrna Medley: chocolate glaze, chocolate jimmies, peanuts

Ms. Prunella: mixed berry glaze, cinnamon sugar

O.C. Sand: honey glaze, cinnamon sugar

Pebble Beach: honey glaze, cinnamon sugar, mini chocolate chips

Peppermint Patty®: mint glaze, mini chocolate chips

Plain Jane: a naked donut (don’t peek)

Rolo®: caramel glaze, mini chocolate chips

Reese Cup®: peanut butter glaze, mini chocolate chips

Strawberry Shortcake: strawberry glaze, graham cracker, powdered sugar

Sundae: honey glaze, peanuts, mini chocolate chips

Trail Mix: banana glaze, nuts, coconut, chocolate jimmies

We usualy get 6-12 sand and Reeses. That will be breakfast for 2 and maybe a few left over for lunch.

extreme breakfast sandwich 
2 french toast doughnuts, bacon, egg, cheese, covered in Raspberry glaze.
This is not on the menu and is amazing. They told me not to tell anyone they did this for me and the next 3 people inline ordered the same thing!!!

Levain doesn't bake cookies. Levain bakes little mountains of joy. Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside. At first I thought the $4 price tag was a bit much, but after a resounding thud from the cookie hitting the table, I had a change of heart. Each cookie weighs 6 ounces. They beat Bobby Flay's cookies in his show called "Throwdown with Bobby Flay". Ever heard of it?  You know these cookies must be extraordinary tasting.  By far the best cookies I have ever had. Is def worth the trip from anywhere.  Each cookie probably has a thousand calories but it's worth it!

Chef Ric Orlando is the master of the spices. No restaruant have I ever been to that is more creative at mixing spices and ingrediants to blow your mind. Just trust Ric no matter what it says on the menu no matter what you usualy like or dont like he knows what hes doing. Ive been going to New World since they were on Zena road (15yrs +) and they have always been my favorite restaurant in the Hudson Valley. Recently winning Chopped twice Ric Orlando is a cuilinary genious. From jerk chicken, bbq ribs, fish, octupus, salads and their famous blackened string beans. Cant go wrong. Hope you like things spicy because you can pick how hot you want your dishes on a scale from 1-10.

As they said on the Food Network this place will fry anything. Their menu includes fried fish, pizza, hamburgers, cadbury eggs, cheery pie, snickers, twix, twinkies, and the list goes on. You can even bring in your own stuff to fry, They will fry anything except skittles. They tried that  once and had to clean out and drain the fryer. 
It seems this place is in direct battle with A. Salt and Battery in Manhattan for the best fish and chips in America. IT was pretty dam good. We also got a fried mars bar and that was ridiculous. So they used to have a double fried cherry pie which was taken off the menu by the NYC dep of health. This place knows how to clog your arteries. If you want some killer fish and chips and desserts stop by and grab a pint too while your there.

Thanks to BAMN! you can now get cheap, good quality food on the go. It’s a great idea for a place like NYC, where no one really has time to eat. It’s the return of the automat, filled with bite-sized burgers, mac & cheese, pizza, chicken strips, grilled cheese, hot dogs, pork buns, and lots of other great stuff – made fresh throughout the day. The automat is back most things are $2 in coins and then you open the door and your ready to rock. Me and Steph stumbled upon this a few years ago. Since then it has been on many TV shows, magazines, etc. But it seems that this place has gone out of business. The last few times I was on St Marks I didn't see it and I looked online and its closed. I believe we had rosemary chicken fingers and they were giving out free ice cream cones.

Not located on the famous Wooster St in New Haven but named after it because of its style of pizza. In the tradition of Frank Pepe's and Sally's, Wooster St Pizza takes the New Haven style pie out of New Haven and brings it to Manchester. They have a few locations around Manchester i went to the location that Adam Richmond went to from Man Vs Food.  He ate some 10lb pie or something. I grabbed some peperoni slices and with one bite was in heaven. I enjoyed this pizza way more then Pepe's or Lombardi's. It was crispy and slightly burnt thin crust just like all the brick oven coal fire pizza places but this was so much better. I swear check it out. I was surprised. inside was kinda cool they had a bunch of race car stuff and a full size monster truck. I cant wait to go back. The only pizza i have had that i thought was better was from Full Moon on Arthur Ave in the Bronx.

Free range organic local hot dogs? Yes they do exist. At Bark they make all their food out of local healthy ingredients and you surely pay for it. But it is so worth it. These are the most gourmet hotdogs i have ever had. You can taste the extra care they put into them. The bun was grilled perfect you could taste the butter then cook the dogs in. A plain hotdog is $5 and a dog with chili bacon cheese ect is around $8. Ouch!!!! But its worth checking out. I would go back in a second. The guy that owns this place was on Throwdown and had a Mac and Cheese Hot Dog. Artisanal sauerkraut aged in oak barrels. They have an extensive beer list and their own growlers which were awesome I almost bought one for a souvenir. Really hip place inside wooden tables and cool music. Free filtered water. Everything is Eco Friendly and trendy. This place has it right. Yes you have to pay alittle extra but perfection is worth it.
Bark does hog dogs as well as a hot dog can be done
